04.1 EV fires - overview

Electric vehicle battery fire incidents - our stats

Every quarter our team provides an overview breakdown of verified electric vehicle battery fires in the form of a one page infographic. 

As our research continues through to early 2024, with thanks to continued funding from the Australian Department of Defence (Defence Science & Technology Group), we're able to provide comparisons on cause, circumstance, ignition, vapour cloud explosion & connection to charging.

2022 updates - free to download

These electric vehicle battery fire incidents overviews are provided in good faith - please see our legal statement here.


Please note our research is not exhaustive. Incidents are sourced & verified from more than one online source, interviews, first hand accounts, videos, images, academic & fire agency reports & online training.
